Lenten Voices: The Harrowing of Hell

Wondering Pilgrim

Medieval Passion plays made much of the visit of the crucified and triumphant Jesus to rescue the trapped ancestors from Hell. It is the ultimate “in your face” to the defeated powers of oppression, chaos and annihilation. Hell has no lasting power.
It’s in 1 Peter 3:18-22. The Lenten journey to Good Friday will always be tempered by the knowledge of resurrection and new creation.
